Dr. Suniti Solomon awarded the Padma Shri

On Republic Day 2017, the Government of India posthumously conferred the Padma Shri, India’s fourth highest civilian award on our founder, Dr Suniti Solomon, in recognition of her pioneering work in the field of HIV disease and her yeoman service to HIV-positive people, their families, their communities, and the country.

In 1986, Dr. Suniti Solomon documented the first six cases of HIV infection in India. At the time, she was a professor of medical microbiology at Madras Medical College, and was guiding a doctoral student’s thesis in HIV/AIDS, which was then an emerging infectious disease in the world. Dr. Solomon was convinced the infection was prevalent in India though nobody had reported it.

Dr Suniti tackled the problem on two levels: medical and social. She knew that with medical advances and the wide availability of anti-retroviral drugs, the disease could be controlled, but stigma could rip apart individuals, families, and entire communities, and she spent the last thirty years of her life fighting it.

Further details about Dr Suniti’s life and work can be found  here and here.

As a woman who was up against tremendous odds in what was essentially a man’s world, Dr Suniti was passionate about the education of women, which she saw as the key to their success in society. If you would like to help with this aspect of her work, i.e., the medical education of girls who could go on to become future Suniti Solomons, please visit this page and support us in whatever way you can.
